If you've recently seen the buzz about this new audio social networking app called Clubhouse, there is a reason. Some of the best minds are using the app to share their insights, lessons learned, network, resources, and even money.
In this particular session called 'Entrepreneurs Only' a bunch of super experienced entrepreneurs came together to share their secrets with the audience and each other. At some point they started a raffle giving ways $1K if the room reaches 2.5K participants. The room crossed that number and hit 3.5K+ shortly after.
As the session continued people started winning the $1K, a bunch of the entrepreneurs pitched in $1K, so there were many winners from the audience. One winner (Oobabiee Brown) mentioned that she'll spend the money on an LLC for her 11 years old son who wants to start a company. So one of the entrepreneurs said "I'll pay for your Son's LLC, you spend the money on the seed funding". She ended up receiving $2K.
Another winner Sara Mengesha (@Sara Mengesha on TW) mentioned she will use the money to help youth at risk. She ended up getting like 5K from entrepreneurs who wanted to support her cause.
I was in the room listening and thinking this is amazing, so I decided to create this article to highlight these superstars and some of the advice I was able to write as I was listening.
Some of the advice:
- Learn what you need to know even if you hate it, and be really freaking good at at (Legal, HR, how to hire, how to train, etc.). Ask your accountant, your attorney, the professional you hire to teach you how things work for your business.
- Don't look at the glamorous side of entrepreneurship, because entrepreneurship has a lot of pain. Get used to the pain. Ask yourself if you're willing to do that. Work hard and be ready to work through the pain.
- May people say I want to become an entrepreneur because I'm tried of 9 to 5. Well, if you become an entrepreneur you'll be working 24/7.
- Just because you work at your own office that doesn't mean you're an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship is about risk. Not doing what you like, not making yourself feel good, it's about taking risk and working hard.
- Invest your money in your businesses and in yourself, instead of saving it. Because investing it will yield you more money.
- Always be networking.
- Bring value, don't just ask for advice.
- When you are starting out you should drop the ego, ego makes you be afraid to reach out for advice.
- Marketing is all about putting out the right message, to the right audience, at the right time.
- Hosting large events is the fastest way forward, and the ultimate way to make connections and bring people together. Invite known speakers to speak at your event and create value.
- For Health there is a new experience people are doing called Float Tank where you float in salt water. It's very relaxing for the muscles and the mind, can be a great way to meditate.
